Shepherd's Heart Veterans Home - Pittsburgh, PA



Shepherd's Heart Veteran's Home (SHVH) is a transitional housing for homeless Veterans. The Veteran's Home is a collaboration between Pittsburgh Veterans Affair's Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV), Comprehensive Homeless Center (CHC) and Shepherd's Heart Fellowship, a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh. The collaboration aims to achieve a continuum of care for homeless Veterans. There are approximately 1500 homeless veterans on any given night in Allegheny County. In 2006, Shepherd's Heart Fellowship was awarded a grant from the VA to renovate the second floor of the church and turn it into an " Engagement Center". The program aims to service male and female veterans who are homeless and may have posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse problems, mental illness, dual diagnosis, and those who are disabled.

Shepherd's Heart is located on the second floor of Shepherd's Heart Fellowship at 13 Pride Street in the Uptown area of Pittsburgh. The first floor contains offices, and the third floor is a large worship center. Previously, the second floor had been a medical center; 10 former examination rooms have been converted into bedrooms. Five beds serve as shelter beds for those moving from the streets into the CHC, and other five beds will be transitional beds for those who have finished the CHC program. In addition to the bedrooms, there is a kitchen, a great room (dining and social room), a laundry facility, and 2 restrooms with showers. The facility is handicap accessible. Bus stops are located close by for easy access to transportation. Three meals a day are provided by SHVH.
